  [libc] Add a loader utility for NVPTX architectures for testing

This patch adds a loader utility targeting the CUDA driver API to launch
NVPTX images called `nvptx_loader`. This takes a GPU image on the
command line and launches the `_start` kernel with the appropriate
arguments. The `_start` kernel is provided by the already implemented
`nvptx/start.cpp`. So, an application with a `main` function can be
compiled and run as follows.

clang++ --target=nvptx64-nvidia-cuda main.cpp crt1.o -march=sm_70 -o image
./nvptx_loader image args to kernel

This implementation is not tested and does not yet support RPC. This
requires further development to work around NVIDIA specific limitations
in atomics and linking.

  Log Message:
  [libc] Implement the RPC client / server for NVPTX

This patch adds the necessary code to impelement the existing RPC client
/ server interface when targeting NVPTX GPUs. This follows closely to
the implementation in the AMDGPU version. This does not yet enable unit
testing as the `nvlink` linker does not support static libraries. So
that will need to be worked around.

I am ignoring the RPC duplication between the AMDGPU and NVPTX loaders. This
will be changed completely later so there's no point unifying the code at this
stage. The implementation was tested manually with the following file and
compilation flags.

namespace __llvm_libc {
void write_to_stderr(const char *msg);
void quick_exit(int);
} // namespace __llvm_libc

using namespace __llvm_libc;

int main(int argc, char **argv, char **envp) {
  for (int i = 0; i < argc; ++i) {

$ clang++ crt1.o rpc_client.o quick_exit.o io.o main.cpp --target=nvptx64-nvidia-cuda -march=sm_70 -o image
$ ./nvptx_loader image 1 2 3
$ echo $?
